I have NO idea what that means. Here is a copy of the error:

 

Device Error- Sense Code(4 08 03)- Logical Unit Communication CRC Error (Ultra-Dma/32)- General 2130970627

 

 

 

Try Googling the error "Logical Unit Communication CRC Error (Ultra-Dma/32)-"

CD Freaks is the closest you will find to a Nero Forum - they aren't bad

 

However, I have found a few things regarding your drive - it seems it doesn't like being in DMA mode and prefers to be in PIO. Check either the BIOS or control panel, system, hardware, device manager and in IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers, properties, look for the connection to the DVD drive. There should be a check box for 'let BIOS select transfer mode' Uncheck that and if it says DMA, try PIO and vice versa

 

DMA mode is preferable but only if the drive supports it

 

 

 

Ok....I'll do that with Dell or something since I don't want to ruin my computer trying to do something. I'll tell you if it works!

Did you check that url for the meaning of the code and what was it?

 

Also, what is the make and model of the DVD drive?

 

 

 

I went onto Dell Support (the place I bought it from and it came with my computer) and they didn't do much. They said it was something and the drive was fine but they probably don't know anything. The DVDs are Office Depot Brand and are DVD-R. I don't quite get the url thing. I don't know a lot about burning DVDs.

 

Thanks for helping and Sorry I couldn't respond quicker it is just that it had a problem opening the page for a while!

We all had a problem over the weekend - the board went belly-up :P

 

OK - what is the sense code error (usually a number) but it is definitely a drive problem

 

The link I gave (the underlined 'this' in my post was for here

 

http://www.smart-projects.net/help.php?help=305

 

That lists the error codes and what they mean

CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) errors could be down to bad media or the drive is acting up. It's similar to the message you get when Windows tries to read a corrupted file

 

Try a different brand of disc and see if that helps - if not, contact Dell again and give them that information

Sorry I didn't tell you this before but... I have used TDK and the same error came up. I have also used Sony brand and the same error came up!

:angry:

Sense code errors are usually caused by the drive itself rather than the software.

 

Read this for details

 

You may have to contact Dell about a replacement drive

 

Yeah that is what I did and it still didn't work but they said that the device was fine. I am getting really frustrated about it too. I have another program they gave me that is only a trial and it works with my discs really well. I also got another copy of Roxio from Dell but it came up with the SAME error code!

OK - get on to Dell and give them the error and what it means - it's a drive problem

 

 

I know but I have done this 5 times and Dell does not know what it means. They all did the same thing and it didn't work. I have had the same code ever since I have gotten the Roxio. It just plain doesn't want to work!!

 

(sorry if I sound lie I am mad at you I just can get very frustrated when it takes monthes for something to work)

 

If you don't know what else to do, just say it and I won't bother you...if you think you have something else you can do I would appreciate it if you could help me!
